Pa-Hin Lodge, A Quality Program

There have been different programs over the years to measure the quality of an OA lodge. The latest OA quality standard is the Journey to Excellence, often abbreviated as JTE or J2E, program. 

As of January 2016, Pa-Hin Lodge has been recognized by national nine times over its 39-year history as a quality program. Six of those recognitions have been bestowed in the past eight years. 

Journey to Excellence, 2012 - Present 

Journey to Excellence (JTE) was started for unit, district, and council programs in 2011. In 2012 the Order of the Arrow implemented the JTE program, replacing the National Quality Lodge program. JTE continues to be the program measurement today. 

As of January 2016, Pa-Hin has qualified on the gold or silver levels all four years of the JTE program's existence.

  • 2015 - Silver 
  • 2014 - Gold 
  • 2013 - Gold 
  • 2012 - Gold

Lodge Achievement Program (LAP), 1978 - 1993

The National Honor Lodge program existed from 1978 through 1993. We have no records of having met the Lodge Achievement Program during the 1978 - 1993 period. 
Ironically LAP now stands for Lodge Assistance Program, a program for the Section leadership.

The National Standard Lodge program was the first OA quality standards program for lodges. It existed from 1972 through 1977.
